Product Description
Highborn
Unique blend of strategic movement and 3D combat

From the creators of the Command and Conquer franchise comes Highborn, a critically acclaimed casual turn-based strategy game.

Strategy, Intelligence, Combat

Highborn offers players two strategy games that combine an intelligent and tactical experience without the frenetic play of a traditional RTS. Players move forces around an overhead map to secure spells and combat support, then dive into 3D combat to deploy those advantages against an unsuspecting enemy. All the fun and fighting is set against an irreverent tale, filled with wacky heroes, witty dialogue, and wild assumptions.

Unique Gameplay

Highborn features a unique blend of strategic movement and 3D combat that caters to a variety of gameplay styles and offers a great deal of replayability. Players unlock hero characters as they progress through the game, giving them access to different abilities and play styles, along with different strategies to use against their opponents.

Unlock hero characters as you progress through the game

5.0 out of 5 stars Near-perfect title! March 22, 2011
By A Customer
Excellent graphics and high resolution.
Comedic dialog makes the story very engaging and far from final fantasy boring. Great tactical game all around... highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a decent Android RTS March 22, 2011
Verified Purchase
Given that this game was from the old C&C guys I gave it a shot. So far it's funny, and the game play is far above what I've seen in other Android games. When our top games have been angry birds and gem miner it's pretty clear we lack strong titles (sorry angry bird fans!). It's a Turn Based game and will soon have multiplayer allowing android players to game with iphone friends. So for the amount of hours of fun for 99c.. how can you go wrong? Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome game March 22, 2011
I have this on my iPad as well as my iPhone and I've played it on Android. It is a very addictive game with good writing.

The best part of the game is that it is actually challenging and each level requires you to think and plan.

This is by far the best turn based strategy game I've seen on a mobile device and I can't wait for more content to come out.

2.0 out of 5 stars UGH- Nice Game Still Buggy November 14, 2011
By Doog37
Verified Purchase
Okay so I downloaded this less than a week ago and was excited to have a real turn-based strategy for my tablet. Did the tutorial all good. Did first chapter... Force Quit. Tried again it saved me 3 moves from the end fine I'll just re-do... FORCE QUIT. tried 4 more times 4 more force quits.
I really do like this game, worth $3+ if it worked... but it doesn't
I have Android 3.2 on an Acer A500.

I am hoping for an update which fixes this...

Menu loads but once campaign is started on the Nexus 7 the game crashes within 10 seconds. Waste of a dollar, hopefully will be fixed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Crashes makes it unplayble.
The game crashes right when I beat the third scenario every time. giving this title a one star for poor coding. looks good but is worthless if you cant play it.
